Fall is surf contest season in Oregon. Embrace it and get in on the fun!

It’s been 5 years, but a surf competition is coming back to Agate Beach in Newport. Newport Parks & Recreation is excited to announce the first annual Agate Beach Surf Classic. Ossies Surf Shop, Rogue Brewery and local volunteer surfers working alongside City staff are bringing back a much missed event.

This will be a two day competition held at Agate Beach with surfing divisions for adults and youth. Surfers can use longboards or shortboards across all age divisions. It's about your moves, not your board. (No SUPs or boogie boards).

Packet pick up will be held at Rogue Brewery on Friday evening from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM. 100% of the contest proceeds will go towards the development of the Agate Beach Wayside Project enhancements. The project has been in the making since 2011 through federal, state and city funding. The enhancement project will included reconfiguration of the wayside to increase available parking, construction of restrooms and showers, and sidewalk & trail improvements from the wayside to the beach to improve safety and pedestrian mobility.

Online Registration is $40 and Day of Registration is $50.
